Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. About a month ago i went from no running to 2.5 miles. I then got pain on the side of lower leg so i waited 3 weeks to start running at 1 mile. Pain was nearly completely gone until resuming running and its getting worse again. I also have an insight course with RRF monday to friday. Do you think my symptoms are stress fracture? Because when i rub my muscle no pain but when i bump it with my hand i feel it. Thankyou.
     
  2. See your GP. Might just be tight muscles from not being used to exercise.
     
  3. Thanks EX-STAB and fellow 02 thief LOL. Do you know if the Army deffer people with previous strees fractures?
     
  4. I should imagine it depends on what trade your going for, i know of a case where a bod with a previous stress fracture was told he could apply for anything except infantry.
     
  5. A strange logic.
     
  6. Ive found out i have a grade 2 ruptured soleus on my left leg. Im meant to go on RRF insight course tommorow. But i cant and will not do any sort of running and destroy my muscle. Ive been deferred for a year already why prolong it. My point is if i went i wont do 1.5 mile, tabbing or assault course which in my opinion is ia waste of all our time. Do you guys think i should go?
     
  7. Hell no. Get healed properly.
